need help - wordpress installation
« on: November 27, 2013, 09:31:57 AM »
I followed contrib howto installing wordpress and it installed perfectly (easy installation). My question is, how do I install wordpress in root directory? My current installation is in http://myword.loc/wordpress and i want it to be in http://myword.loc any tutorials?

all is written in documentation

* see http://wiki.contribs.org/Wordpress#Options

therefore it seems that you can change the url see http://wiki.contribs.org/Web_Application_RPM#New_DB_settings

Code: [Select]
     To run foo from the root of a domain, This option is buggy to remove

config delprop foo domain

To enable your changes run these commands

expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
sv h /service/httpd-e-smith

change foo by wordpress :)

but it seems to me that you have more things to perform if you wan to test it as make dns record on your router, or on your external dns record. This can not work out of the box.

* The other solution to me could be to install wordpress by hand in an ibay and then set a domain to point to this ibay, with this manner you could have a root url.

* Not sure if with dns we can trick to give a cname as  mydomaine.se/wordpress ?

I have a solution but i do not know if it is appropriate as it is a hack. You should open a bug to find a better solution .

the hack consists :

make an entry in your dns record of your router or dns server to point the domain toto.com to the ip of your server

add in the wordpress template

Code: [Select]
nano /etc/e-smith/templates/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf/92wordpress
Code: [Select]
      $OUT .= "Alias  /wordpress  /usr/share/wordpress\n";
######add-this-to-the-template
        $OUT .= "<VirtualHost 0.0.0.0:80>\n";
        $OUT .= "    ServerName toto.com\n";
        $OUT .= "    DocumentRoot         /usr/share/wordpress\n";
        $OUT .= "</VirtualHost>\n";
######End
      $OUT .= "\n";

then issue this CL
Code: [Select]
expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.confBut it is a quick and bad hack as the domain toto.com will never appear in the server-manager and the day when you will set the same name of domain, you will have some troubles. In the same way when the rpm will be updated you will have some problem, except if you do your own fragment of template

perhaps a better solution

# nano /etc/e-smith/templates/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf/92wordpress-virtualhost

Code: [Select]
{
       $OUT .= "<VirtualHost 0.0.0.0:80>\n";
        $OUT .= "    ServerName toto.com\n";
        $OUT .= "    ServerAlias www.toto.com\n";
        $OUT .= "    DocumentRoot         /usr/share/wordpress\n";
        $OUT .= "</VirtualHost>\n";
}

but you will have the same inconveniences as above

it is what zero does after he tried the wordpress rpm. His problem was that he does'nt want the url http://his-domaine.com/wordpress, he simply wants   http://his-domaine.com
